Who is Ageas? What do we do, and what drives us? Click through to read our story.
Ageas is a listed international insurance Group with a heritage spanning close to 200 years. We offer Retail and Business customers Life and Non-Life insurance products and we are also engaged in reinsurance activities. Our customers are at the heart of our business, and our products are designed to anticipate, manage and cover their risks through a wide range of products designed for their needs, both today and in the future.
We are one of Europe's larger insurance companies and we are also well represented in Asia. In total, Ageas is on the ground in 14 countries (Belgium, the UK, France, Portugal, Turkey, China, Malaysia, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Singapore, and the Philippines) through a combination of wholly owned subsidiaries and long-term partnerships with strong financial institutions and key distributors. Ageas ranks among the market leaders in the countries in which it operates.
In 2021, Ageas reported annual inflows close to EUR 40 billion (at 100%). Ageas is listed on Euronext Brussels and is included in the BEL20 index.
Every day, more than 40,000 skilled and committed employees are at the service of our customers. Our Group has at its foundation a set of core values - Care, Share, Deliver, and Dare – representing who we are and how we work.
As a “Supporter of your life” the Group seeks to create social and economic value for customers, employees, partners, investors and society at large.
Customers take centre stage. Ageas takes care of the “what if’s” and the “what’s possible” so that they can live life to the fullest with peace of mind at every stage of their journey. We are there to support them through the ups and downs of life’s journey. In a world that is sometimes difficult to navigate and predict, we protect what they have today and help them to make their dreams of tomorrow happen.
At the end of 2021, we successfully concluded Ageas’s 3-year strategic plan Connect21. As well as delivering a strong operational performance combined with continued growth, Connect21 was also about going beyond the traditional parameters of insurance.
The new strategic cycle Impact24, which kicks off this year, is a natural evolution from Connect21. Impact24 is a long-term sustainable growth strategy. Our strong company culture, proven capital and risk management disciplines, a robust balance sheet, a future-oriented management team and highly committed employees provide us with an anchor and a strong platform for future growth. The choices and investments we make are not just for the next three years but for the years that follow on through 2030 and beyond.
As an insurer, Ageas is at the heart of society and present in the lives of many. And with that comes responsibility. Sustainability is at the core of our business and is integrated into our strategic planning.
As an international insurance Group, we make an important contribution in addressing risks but also in stimulating innovation and collaboration, both within our Group and in broader society.
And wherever we do business, we have an opportunity to respond to societal challenges - from health and an ageing population, to mobility and climate change. This ensures we continue to be relevant and create value for all our stakeholders - now and into the future.
In this context, underwriting the UN Principles of Responsible Investment (PRI) for its investments, the UNEP FI Principles of Sustainable Insurance (PSI) and embracing a selection of relevant United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) helps support these efforts.
